Breakfast Sushi for Lunch {making lunch fun for kids series}

Thank you for sharing!

Its one of those treats that kids don’t seem to get enough of: breakfast for lunch. But I hate just doing pancakes all the time. I like to mix it up and do something heartier, with sausage, you know? Enter Breakfast Sushi. Add little syrup and, if I don’t eat them all before I pop them in my kids’ lunch boxes, there’s like total “mom I love you” about to pour from my kiddos’ mouths as soon as they get home. I mean, who said lunch should be boring? Let’s break that bad habit and fun-it-up!

I love this creative use for breakfast leftovers for kids lunch boxes.

Ingredients for Breakfast Sushi

  • 2 slices of bread
  • 1 egg, scrambled (this is awesome if its leftover)
  • 1 breakfast sausage, julieanne sliced, thick
  • 1/2 cup grated cheese

How to Make Breakfast Sushi

  1. Using a rolling pin, flatten your bread slices individually. Set aside.
  2. Spread the egg and cheese mixture over 3/4 of each bread slice. Do not spread over the entire slice.
  3. Make a line of sausage (bundles of 3 is what I usually do) about 1/4-inch into the spread, all the way across (see the pic if you don’t get what I mean). It’s ok if some sticks out on one end–makes that last piece of sushi very tasty, indeed.
  4. Using the sausage as the fulcrum and folding gently (though tightly), roll the bread and eggs over and over until the entire slice is rolled. This should be rolled tightly enough that the egg squishes all the way. Otherwise, the bread won’t stay rolled for this next part. If you have to, you can trim off a portion of the bread.
  5. Using a very sharp knife (a dull knife will not work), slice 1-inch sections of the roll into sushi.
  6. Enjoy!

If you want to make this dairy-free, you can do breakfast potatoes or hashbrowns instead of the cheese, but it won’t stick together as well, so you’ll have to stick toothpicks in the sushis to keep them together. Or just smoosh them together tightly in your bento box. I’ve even made these with just potatoes, no cheese, no egg. But that’s not quite as tasty. Oh, well!
